Abstract Visceral leishmaniasis is a severe disease caused by the intracellular protozoa Leishmania donovani. Diagnosis is based on examination of bone marrow or serology. The role of imaging techniques as diagnostic tools remains to be established in visceral leishmaniasis. We report multiple nodular lesions in the liver and spleen on ultrasonography and computed tomography in a patient with visceral leishmaniasis. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of multiple nodular hepatosplenic lesions in visceral leishmaniasis.
